    I'm in Toronto and my He-ro only arrived a week ago so, don't worry about it, should be arriving eventually.

    Funny though that they don't just keep some figures in Canada for Canadian customers. If the small type of the packaging is any indication then all figures move through Canada at some point.

    Mattel canada is in mississauga, that's their main warehouse they really should set up a distribution ctr for matty there.

    My He-Ro arrived last week.. beginning of September. I have had other figures take longer to arrive. For me the same day shipping would arrive about 3 days later.. and the delivery guy would come at weird times where if I happened to be at work that day I would miss him. Not sure what happens after they try to deliver it to you and you are not home. I was told.. they might send it back to the place where it was mailed out from. So with that fear I have since opted for economy shipping.

    Oh not sure if it matter.. I am in B.C. and my stone was red.

    He-Ro and Egon finally showed up today, 10$ customs charge, but whatever. Very cool figures. I was kind of ho-hum on He-Ro when I saw him the first time but actually having him in hand makes him much more impressive. Got the green stone with mine.

    I finally got me he-ro today - am in Vancouver. I find it always takes a month but as soon as a holiday or two are thrown in the the time jumps up dramatically.
    Also - today was the first time I ever had to pay duty ($10) on my figure - and I've got all the previous ones. Maybe because it was in a bigger box?

    I came in here because I was worried about my Tri-klops. Now I see how it is. :S

    I wonder if it has to do with the location in the USA it's being shipped from, because I've had packages arrive in a week or two lately. Yes, even by First Class Mail. I remember back years ago, for the longest time it seemed to be standard that it would take 3 weeks. But lately it's just been really different.
    There's no reason it should take more than 4 weeks thought. Have you guys checked the delivery dates to see when they were first sent out? Maybe the shipping company is slacking off.

    It's also too bad you're stuck between a rock and a hard place. Order multiple items to save on shipping and you get nailed with taxes and fees. Order single items to try and avoid taxes, and get nailed with expensive shipping.
    The only solution is to order more than one figure, combine orders with other people in the USA, and have someone else ship them to you with a lower customs value. Single figures will not offer any savings.

    I also wouldn't count on Mattel shipping them from a Canadian shipping center for Canadian destinations. I have a feeling Mattel's arrangement with their online reseller comes with NO flexibility. It's taken YEARS for Hasbro Toy Shop to offer Canadian shipping.

    You know, thats a damn good idea.

    I just checked the box my He-ros came in, here's what I came up with.

    Email Shipment notification - Aug 7
    Shipment label Ship date - Aug 17
    (Barcode also dated 0717)
    Canada Customs form - Aug 14
    Recieved - Sept 8

    I'm thoroughly confused on how the customs form is dated before the shipment labels, but if the "Mail On The Move" shipping label is any indication, they're definitely slacking off...10 days between shipment notification and (theoretical) actual shipment.

    What was the ship date on the shipping label itself?

    I haven't ordered from Matty yet, but being in Vancouver, Canada, I wanted to comment on the shipping concerns.

    I never have problems receiving things from the US.. knock on wood. I've received items from the east coast in US in 2 weeks time, on a regular basis. And this is just the regular, cheap-o international air mail option and is usually only a few more bucks than shipping to the US.

    Is Matty shipping ground?

    The only 'carrier' I've had issues with is UPS. Some of their extra fees are complete ******** in my mind, and I refuse to use them. Their fees have been the source of heated conversation, including a few lawsuits. I refuse to use them.

    Sorry to hear the wait is so long, I guess my wait for Adora will be extended a bit even after she's paid for!

    I got y Triclops today! a day after buying Webstor! that is the longest it has ever taken EVER!!!

    normall it's 3-4 weeks to get them ... but this one was 7 weeks! thats crazy. Although things are looking good for webstor, because i bought it on the 15th and got a "Package shipped!" e-mail on the 16th .... thats way FASTER than normal ... so we'll see with this one.

    If it's slow again, then it's Canada post and not matty.

    Check your shipping label and customs form (although you didn't mention customs, so if you didn't get one then there's no way to tell).

    It took over a month for my Tri-Klops to arrive but only 2 & a half weeks for my JLU figures I think it has to do with customs(if the size of the box is too big they will hold it) for how long you wait.
